taxes. >> i think people are shy of spending a lot of money, of getting themselves out there. it's been a difficult five years, six years. i think people are just worried that it's going to continue the same. >> people are being realistic. people have been told at the end of every year the last several that next year is going to be the year that things get really better. the economy has improved, but it's far from healthy. >> what the about the state of the u.s. economy now? the latest polls out, this from cnn orc says people today as far as economic conditions believe their pretty poor. 68% say people are poor. look at the fox poll projecting the economy one year from now, there's optimism. see how that tracked over three years. what about where things stand? let's bring in our panel.
3:40 pm
george will, charles krauthammer. what about the disconnect george from where we are and where people think we are? >> the people are right. the two-thirds that think the economy is not good. the recession began in december 2007. since then, we have added 13 more million americans in the country and have 13 million fewer jobs. we have lowered the unemployment because more and more workers are no longer counted because they're not looking for work. if the work force participation rate today was as high as when the recession began, it would be 11%. it wouldn't be called recovery at all. >> this congress did not move forward kirstin on 55 tax cuts, didn't renew 55 tax cuts for
3:41 pm
individuals and businesses. you heard that one person talk about seeing his check get a little smaller for the take home. more and more people this year will see that same check getting smaller. >> right. well hopefully they'll pick it up in this new congress. tax cuts are one of the things about the congress. there's no certainty they do them in a longer term plan than one year. it's part of the dysfunction. i think it gets to why the economy has had a had time turning around. look at the last year. whatever growth it was going to have, it took a hit from sequestration and all dysfunction in congress where there was no certainty. it made a lot of people uneasy. looking for it this year, there are things to be optimistic about. if you look at housing was a real drag. it seems to be rebounding. seeing a lot of growth there.
3:42 pm
there are good indicators the economy is starting to take off. >> charles. >> you measure the growth rate by the growth of the economy. i think we'll probably be around 3% which of course historically would be the weakest since second world war. people have the sense it isn't recovery. under reagan, rebound was sharp and fast, regrowth rate of 7-9%. people had the sense of morning in america that it was actually true. here you've got a flat line recovery slightly accelerating. two reason, the price of money is zero. federal reserve decided anybody that wants to expand can borrow. that is helping. to the extent that there's any demand out there. the second is that the price of energy has declined because of the boom and fracking resolution. which gives us after decades some advantage over the third
3:43 pm
world countries when they produce goods. labor is cheaper but our energy is cheap. i think that's going to be the basis of a sustained -- sustained but a slow recovery. i don't think it's going to slip back. what we're experiencing also with high unemployment as george indicates a new normal. we're not approaching but close to european levels of chronic unemployment. these people are not going to return. in europe they are nearly sustained for decades. i think that's never happened here. i think as a result of the slow recovery where people are left behind that's our new normal. that's why there's a sense of things not having recovered correctly or in any way fully. >> we always talk about it on an economic panel as to how much the federal reserve has impacted the state of the which. has essentially kept it a float during this time by pumping all
3:44 pm
this money into the economy. at some point that has to change doesn't it george? yes. it's been -- federal reserve has been extremely aggressive and futile as they're always optimistic projections of effect of zero interest rate policy indicates. it's had the effect it was designed in this sense. it has doubled since obama was inago rated. they're going to run up the stock market. they can't get higher yields anywhere else in the stock market. that will create a wealth effect of 20% of american, 80% of direct beyond stocks and trickle down to everyone else. that's the theory. the problem is working against that is now obamacare which put two new phrases in our lexicon. 49ers and 29ers. 49ers are the companies that aren't going to hire the 50th employee because mandates fall on them.
3:45 pm
29ers are poor devils now working 29 hours. obamacare defines full time employment 30 hours. they're going to have to work the 29 hours. >> the great irony here is that obama has decided he's going to dedicate himself and the rest of his time in office to fighting inequality. he has created the greatest inequality because of zero interest rates and the fed has put a trillion which had to higher assets. rich got richer. it left everyone else behind. you get the sense of the economy not improving. he's the cause and now he's going to redeem us from the misery that he has contributed. >> at the same time kirstin, there's a battle of extending unemployment benefits. there needs to be a three month bipartisan deal. take a listen. >> we know this is not something
3:46 pm
that can or should go on forever. even with the economy improving at 7% unemployment and with the high degree of long term unemployment we face as a country, this is not the time to cut off families who are using this as a temporary lifeline while they're out looking for jobs. >> is this going to get done? >> well, if republicans are smart, they'll agree to it. they're acting like they're not going to. i think it would be a bad political decision for them. there's the argument, humanity argument you don't want to cut families off. there's a positive effect on the economy which is this is money that gets spent right away generally speaking. these people don't have a lot of money. as soon as they get it, they spend it into the economy. it makes sense. politically it would be a mistake for republicans to vote against it. >> ronald reagan used to say nothing lasts as long as a temporary government program. this is an emergency as it was
3:47 pm
called on the first pass, unemployment compensation. 98-99 weeks now. why don't we drop pretense and say it's going on forever. we're now in the second half of the fifth year of a recovery. he's saying not now, too soon. >> we're hoping the economy is turning around. i don't think doing it throughout half of next year is unreasonable. >> we've got to test spurling and say we'll give you three months. we build into it a wind down so there's a final date so the temporary emergency program finally ends. >> next up, the latest on obamacare. and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab. humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience
3:48 pm
the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief, and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tubeulosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you le in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira today. remission is possible.

snow starting to fall out there outside the the white house. supposed to feel like 4 degrees here tomorrow morning. pretty chilly. there's a chilly reception from gop attorneys general. 11 of them signed a letter today accusing the administration of breaking the law by making numerous changes and they say this. we're deeply concerned that this administration is consistently rewriting new rules effectively inventing for lawed law. the irony is changes being put forgot to fix the exchanges will ultimately destroy the market and increase premiums for consumers that play by the rules. back with the panel. couple of things happening. the administration kirstin is making a full court press to tell positive stories doing local press conferences about numbers, about stories.
3:52 pm
really trying to tell the tale it's working. >> well the numbers are not as good as they wanted them to be. they had a target of signing up about 3 million by now. combine state and federal exchanges you get 2 million. they're a little shy of that. not surprising because of the website dysfunction. there are good stories. there are people that are getting cheaper health insurance and people that didn't have health insurance that have it now. people had pre-existing conditions and were sick and weren't able to get coverage. those are stories that need to be told. there's a lot of bad stories, people that lost their insurance and the promise you can keep your plan if you like it. there's a balance of both of those. it's important to remember there's good and bad that came of this. >> there's winners and losers. the secret core from the transfer of wealth from the upper middle class and middle class people who had insurance, liked their insurance who are
3:53 pm
now discovering sticker shock, they have huge premium, larger deductibles and excess what they're pay as good essentially helping the ones at lower end of the spectrum. in that sense it creates the winners and losers. i think for the republicans, the key now is to focus on the breaking of the trust and the promise. all they have to do in the race particularly ones running in louisiana, north carolina and one other state i feel like rick perry, can't remember the third one, to show for example -- oh yeah and new hampshire. showing the senator actually saying the words of obama, if you have your plan and like your plan you can keep it. it's not only the disruption of their lies that they're going to lose their doctors, going to lose the best hospitals. it is the deception. that's the key in the transfer of wealth.
